The designer desk that klicks into place


In terms of my children’s art work, I have to admit I have reached my limit. My kids produce many ‘masterpieces’ and each gets a turn in the spotlight (on the front of the fridge) but my problem lies with the quantity that is produced. Prolific…copious….out of control…are all words that pop to mind. When another afternoon of drawing is done the results are added to what I call the ‘Vesuvius of Art’ – that overflowing pile of paper in the craft corner. The growing mountain has prompted me to think that my kids really need to shift from the kitchen table to a desk so they can keep projects going, store favourite pieces and know whose textas are whose.

The Klick desk by P’kolino is perfectly sized for three to seven year olds and is both practical and fun. Kids will like the under-the-seat storage shelf and drawer for all their works in progress and adults will like the fact that the desk packs away into a simple, neat cube,- a bonus for those with minimal space. I particularly like that it is tailor made for younger children. The storage capacity makes it more practical than the simple table and chair more commonly available for this age group. See the desk in action and consider how it could ‘klick’ into your child’s room.

The Klick desk is available in three colours – green, orange and red – and costs US$198. The desk is available from Uncommon Goods who ship internationally.
